the obama campaign has this year is a major advance. part of the problem with the way that people have tested messages historically is that you either have a poll that asking somebody who they support, and it they wills them a bunch of information. you see if moves or you ask somebody directly. if i told you romney hadn't paid taxes for x number of years make it more or less likely to vote for them. some people fell you would they move. people telling you they would move is a pretty sort of con ject yiewrl thing. i wouldn't cognitively trust anybody that would do under the hypothetical scenario. they may or may not already know. that's part of the problem with the polls they ask people if you knew of a piece of information you may or may not already know. or in focus groups you bring somebody in and so you a dozen people and show them an ad and you ask them again did everybody change their mind. you're purchasing somebody to change their mind and they're being forced to watch an ad they might tune out. using the experimental things that the obama campaign has. they randomly assign mail
a clear admission that the middle class buried these last four years. and the obama years, that would be. he later tried to walk the statement back, saying the middle class was buried by policies supported by mitt romney and paul ryan. joining us now is congressman peter welsh, who joins us frequently on "varney & company." welcome back, good to see you. >> good to be here. i'm sure we're going to agree that the middle class has indeed been buried. income down about $4,000 in the the last four years for middle america. i say it's because of the pills of stimulus, a massive government spending, and heavy regulation simply has not produced a robust economy which would raise the middle glass. it's subdued the middle class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four
is simple. we can't afford four more years of barak obama. we can barely afford four more months. if we have four more years of barak obama, we can't wait four years for people to find jobs or our houses to be worth what we paid for them. we can't wait four years for our kids to find job when is they graduate college. we can't wait for four more years. we can't afford it. >> marco rubio told me he thinks mitt romney, having a chance tomorrow night for the first time ever to be on the same stage with the president of the united states in his words, will crystallize the choice for voters. i think that's about the only thing the obama camp agrees with as well. >> we're about to get going on this, thanks. >>> shepard smith and the fox report in studio b teams are live in denver tomorrow night for the big debate. you can also watch bret baier and megyn kelly in prime time, just tick before 9:00 o'clock tomorrow night eastern time right here on the fox news channel. >>> governor romney, meanwhile, is also hunkered down getting ready for the debate and republicans say vice president joe biden just
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
that are not going to work that fit with the narrative that we've had for years that obama is strong. >> can i grant you that and ask, what about the debate? a debate on foreign policy that will bring these issues into the forefront. >> i would love to see obama who really knows these issues from a firsthand fingerprints on the documents way, versus romney who has been multiple choice and really has no foreign policy background at all. >> as you were saying at the beginning, s.e., a case to be made for going into either of these directions, either embracing the foreign policy criticism, going at it hard, trying to use that as a broader frame to say the president is ineffective, or sticking with the economy. i think either decision has a rationale behind it. what struck me as you have, mitt romney today with an op-ed in the "wall street journal" going to give this foreign policy speech next week as the same time the campaign is saying they're not going to change their day to day message. you have them basically not really making a decision between either of those two courses. i think it comes back to
. obama he did too. a year after it passed a percentage of americans who believe the stimulus created jobs was lower than the percentage of americans who believe elvis was alive. at one point i told the story how obama told his cabinet that the stimulus was the only thing less popular than he was. when you put the words change and obama this close together you are going to get yelled at. the new -- "the new new deal," right wingers the text of the old new deal and left wingers don't think this spineless sellout of a president is fit to share a book jacket with the new deal. i had a feeling some readers wouldn't get past the first four words. and i was right. a few weeks ago i got a google alert that "the new new deal" was in the new republic. i had written a lot for that magazine. i have a lot of friends there. i clicked on the link and it is the blog coast by a 23-year-old researcher who announced right away he couldn't even make it to the first page. she couldn't get past the first four words. but not these four first words. i will read what he wrote. it was so disturbing, so washington

on that note with the obama campaign since they've had four years ago time to test it and now they have four years later, is it any innovative or different techniques that are using now anymore that you could -- >> guest: these programs are really the thing. they have been used in small airways by some institutions, afl-cio, emily's list over the years your in certain states, but using them in a presidential campaign as he obama campaign has this year is a major advance. part of the problem with the way that people have tested messages historically is that you either have a poll that asked some of who they support, and it tells them a bunch of defamation and to ask. >> into sport and you see anybody those. before you ask directly if i told you that mitt romney hasn't paid taxes for x number of years, would it make you more or less likely to vote for him? some% of people either move when they hear that a mesh or they tell you they wouldn't. people telling you that they would move is a pretty sort of conjectural thing. i wouldn't cognitive growth anyone who told you what they would do under hy

after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manufacturing a war because global international banks and their lackeys have bankrupted the world. derivatives are nothing more than leverage. you have a situation where if you look and research it, the city of london which is one square mile in the heart of london which is not even governed by the laws of eng
've seen that we aren't better off after four years of the obama economy. it's not working. the stimulus failed. the health care is -- bill is now increasing our premiums. you just have a report that i believe you all and others have reported on today that shows that 27 million americans will still be uninsured even with the trillions and trillions of dollars of costs in obama care. plus, more people will be out of work because of the small business tax increases from obama care, so what mitt romney is going to talk about is appeal to how we can do so much better. we need to invest in small businesses in latinos and women and, you know, people who are coming to this country often are starting small businesses, and that's -- we can't be putting new taxes on those small businesses, and we need to have new health care. >> is he going to get -- >> will also help -- >> i'm sorry. is he going to be more specific on what type of loopholes he is talking about, exemptions, to offset these tax cuts that he is proposed to grow the economy. is he going to provide more specifics? >>. >> when presiden

is the only job for the past five years. meanwhile, barack obama and joe biden have been running the country for the past three and a half years. >> really? >> so they don't have a day job. >> what's your response to that? >> i think he's going to overrooch, and the reason i think that is if you look back in 2008, there was all this talk about palin, she couldn't perform. >> she whipped biden in 2000. >> she whipped him, and she was young like ryan. i'm telling you. >> the bar for sarah palin was so low that anybody could have passed that bar. >> the bar for joe biden is so high because of how poorly president obama did last week. >> the ryan is setting him up. >> they down-played expectations for obama, but they're sufficiently overplaying expectations in some ways for joe biden. i think he'll do a good job. i don't think anybody has a problem saying that, even the democratic side. >> he's going to see the middle class got hosed undered regime and ryan will jump all over it. sarah, we must visit us more. we miss you. thanks for watching. i'm larry kudlow. i can't wait for ryan versus biden.
romney? guest: president obama, in his short for years has raised the debt by five trillion dollars. the share of the national debt is $50,000 per person. it is not want to be president obama's generation that will pay it off. it will be myself and fellow students. students are understanding they do not want that. students are supporting iran because he has the plan to ensure when we graduate from college, there is an economy where there is jobs. right now there is not. half recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. students go to college to be educated to get a job. i have many friends that are graduating this spring and cannot find jobs, and it is because of the obama economy. host: our lines are open. we do have the mind set aside for those of you that live in ohio. the first call is from cory in columbus. caller: good morning. with president obama instituting more pell grants, what made you think of this as a backdoor draft? students who cannot afford college and of going into the military programs to get an education. guest: well, i think mitt romney in the firs

. >> so michelle obama may have been married to her husband for 20 years, but in that clip from the dnc, joe biden's making a strong case for his position as the number two most devoted person to president obama. if his words weren't clear enough, let me state it plain. joe biden hearts barack obama. we will no doubt see evidence of that bromance unfold thursday night. on the other hand, mitt romney's put paul ryan in the position where he has to defend statements like this. >> . >> so it feels like passionate romance and a marriage of convenience here between these two. is that the key thing that a vp has to be is basically champion for his principal? is that what people are looking for in the vp debate? >> unless the vp think they don't have much of a shot. in which case he has to think ahead to the next election cycle. it's clear to me what's what paul ryan is doing. so he should be. >> the interesting thing here, way back when they put ryan on the ticket, i thought i understood why. i thought the calculation was romney looked and said all summer long, i've been behind. this isn't bu

to the other guy. the democrats were in control for four years, two under bush and two under obama, yet it was all bush's fault and nobody takes responsibility. that's the problem. the voters need to take responsibility and get rid of every one of the incumbents, it's maybe not in this election, but if they don't get this country straightened out and get the economy straightened out, but just take one election in two years, if it's not better, get rid of every one of them and they will finally get the message. host: let's look at some national news stories. this story from the new york times -- and this other story in the times -- looking at other international news stories on long lines of what our last caller was talking about, whether international news is getting attention. and this in the washington post -- the debate tomorrow night will focus on domestic issues. what would you be listening for? if you're not going to watch, why? monty writes -- in new orleans on the republican line, eustice. caller: good morning. i don't know how anything can change. romney would have to come up w
the obama administration tried to do that the last four years and we have seen ideas from the ronny administration. romney administration. host: how large a role this manufacturing plant in the u.s.? -- does manufacturing play in the u.s.? guest: a lot of people feel like it is is dying industry in america, but take a look at the numbers. the u.s. still the world's largest manufacturer. manufacturing comprises 11.7% of gross domestic product. manufacturing comprises 9% of total u.s. employment. and it is directly employing 10.9 million workers in the u.s. host: we are going to get into the numbers and look at how things like 9% total employment have changed at the last couple of decades. mr. morath, let me ask about the kinds of manufacturing done. surely that has changed the last couple of decades. guest: we have a fairly robust automotive industry, but there are a number of different areas where things have changed and could change further, such as increasing energy production -- oil, gas, refining. host: this chart is from the bureau of labor statistics, a sister agency, but they
the congressman doesn't like the affordable care act and obama, it extends medicare for eight years. it's a safety net. it's important for our seniors. works for our seniors. we ought not become destroying it. quite frankly, you have not stepped forth with ideas on how to make medicare solvent for the future. >> representative rehberg, 30 minutes. >> you don't extend medicare by taking $716 billion out. he said benefits were not going to cut. that's not the issue, the issue is doctors and hospitals will not be fairly reimbursed for seeing seniors. if president obama and senator tester say you will not lose your insurance under the healthcare reform, no, the problem is nobody will be able to give you that insurance. the doctor may not be able to see you. we must put that back by repealing obamacare. if by putting the money back into medicare, we can make it stronger and last longer and begin serious discussions of a bottom-up solution. >> question from tom to senator tester. >> yes senator tester, you frequently referred to as the only working farmer in the u.s. senate. trade issues by montana far

: there is no question -- president obama had a jobs bill last year. the republicans had no use for it. it was put aside because they did not want to have the present have a success. they were not interested in creating jobs. do they have a jobs plan? there is no record that cutting tax creates jobs. i do think the democrats need to be bolder and put forward many more ideas about how to create jobs. in my mind the democratic party is a coalition of interest. the republican party i think will possibly expire because it has become so extremist. it risks extinction in a country going through such demographic shifts. it is primarily a white, older party to that. it doesn't understand how they will operate. they will throw as much money and do the vote suppression which about 11 courts have said we're not going to buy into the idea of bogus voter fraud to impair the greatest rights america has. host: we have 10 students on the bus. all the journalism students are double majors. a quick comment from you as an editor who hires journalists. guest: i think that is a great idea. many journalism schools are going
have to cut it $250 billion over ten years. >> wait. so you've got a document where barack obama is saying we've got to cut medicare $250 billion, which i think is responsible. but his campaign team is going out there every day saying watch out. we're not going to cut medicare, but mitt romney is. >> yeah. i mean, it's not just his campaign team. it's the president and himself. he says, we're going to reform and strengthen medicare for the long haul the right way by reducing the cost of health care. everyone would agree with that. not by shifting it onto seniors. well, in his own documents, he says, we have to do this. when i talk to him, he realized and said very openly that it's irresponsible to not address this. >> let's play a clip that you were alluding to. go ahead and roll it. >> all the democrats felt that for democrats to join with republicans in anything that could be painted as a medicare cut when there was a huge difference between democratic and republican positions on medicare generally was bad politics. it's an untenable position to say we're not going to do anythi
today all saying question not afford four more years with president obama in office. one ad targets nevada voters and features greg anthony who was born in the state. another focuses on unemployment and foreclosures in ohio. and this one. >> over $0.30 of every dollar obama spends is borrowed much of it from countries like china. he is not just wasting money, he is borrowing it and then wasting it. >> that is a huge romney talking point and really one of the only plans we have heard from him is if he is elected we'll crack down on trade. he brought that up on wednesday's debate when he said every federal program will have to pass a test. it is worth borrowing money from china to pay for it. yes, china does hold large amount of u.s. debt but its stake is only 8%. we owe two-thirds of our debt right back to the federal government. romney is also focusing on messages that president obama will raise taxes on middle class by about $4,000 per family. but the obama campaign is firing back and saying that study has nothing to do with the president's policies. fact the presi

president obama last year in the grand bargain talks with house speaker boehner talked about more ambitious proposals than medicare than he's advocated so far like raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67. hasn't said a word about that in the election campaign so far. you can expect the two to clash on that issue, as well. >> john, i know you've looked at some poll numbers from the journal and nbc news. maybe a slight tightening on a national level. but certainly in some important states like ohio, the president continues to lead. i know you've said the romney strategists believe they need ohio. if it's mathematically possible to win without it, why do they still believe they need it? >> well, because if you don't win ohio, you're probably not going to win, say, wisconsin, which is another mid western state, paul ryan's on the ticket, that moves in similar ways to the state of ohio. it's hard to piece together especially given the overwhelming dominance by the president of the hispanic vote, states like colorado where we are right now, or nevada. so ohio may be a better shot for mitt romne
. the vast majority of polls taken this year have shown president obama ahead, many of them within the margin of error. in mid to late september, several polls including one commissioned by fox, another by "the washington post" and one by nbc, showed president obama ahead and seeming to widen his margin a little bit outside the margin of error. however, as i noted, there is that rasmussen poll out today, and that is a robo dial poll, but it does show governor ahead by one point. rasmussen has been slightly divergent from some of the polling -- jenna: you really know your numbers, julian. they tell us only so much, as you mentioned. being on the ground there with the appearances by both governor romney and the president, they've been to the state often, i mentioned the president 44 times as president, do these appearances really matter? do you think they're really having an impact on the ground there? >> well, as you said earlier, i mean, they excite the base. those people who are eager, who are partisans on the republican side or the democratic side, those are the people who turn up to campai
, and it will probably be decisive in this race. in 2008 when barack obama carried virginia breaking a 40-plus-year streak of republican wins on the presidential level, he did so by getting very high turnout. there was about 75% voter turnout in virginia in 2008. and in many of the kind of key bellwether areas within virginia in the so-called urban crescent that spans from northern virginia through the richmond region and down along the atlantic coast, barack obama did, did well in a number of those key areas which have trended republican in other elections. in the subsequent years, as you noted in 2009, governor bob mcdon -- a popular governor here in virginia and one who has been a key surrogate for governor romney -- led a republican statewide sweep of the offices and turnout that year was down to about 40%. so turnout and both parties getting their bases and their supporters to the polls, that will probably be the decisive factor in virginia. jenna: it's nice to have someone, julian, who really knows the state. thank you so much for joining us. we look forward to having you back. >> thanks for
